This workshop will focus on specific intervention integrations, including fundamental psychoeducation, that therapists need to include when exploring the two-way relationship between health and psychological experience.

The workshop will include amendments to the formulation process that incorporates psychoeducation, with emphasis on therapeutic alliance and cohesion. It will also explore intervention additions that benefit women experiencing physical health issues, such as:

- Interoceptive awareness practices
- Behavioural experiments around assertiveness and emotional expression
- Problem-solving common cognitive restructuring processes in the context of women's health.

The workshop will look at the use of existing CBT protocols and how they can be enhanced for specific patient populations that may otherwise feel unheard. This workshops is suitable for all CBT therapists.

At the end of the workshop, attendees should be able to:

- Build formulation skills in the context of women’s health issues

- Build biopsychosocial knowledge to inform intervention adaptations in the context of CBT

- Gain familiarity of CBT intervention adaptations in the context of women’s health patient populations

- Adapt formulations to incorporate physical experiences more centrally

- Adapt behavioural CBT interventions to the experience of common women’s health presentations

- Adapt cognitive CBT interventions to the experience of common women’s health presentations 

- Have a more solid working knowledge of how mind and body interact and the evidence base for CBT improving the two-way communication
